Iran’s new Defense Minister Brigadier General Amir Hatami said the missile program of the Islamic Republic will push ahead relentlessly, vowing to continue activities of the country’s defense industry.
“[Iran’s] missile program will proceed according to the approved plans,” Hatami told reporters on Sunday following the first cabinet session of the newly-formed Iranian government.
In response to a question about some foreign countries’ pressure on Iran to stop its missile program, he added that such activities “would not be affected by any type of pressure.”
The Iranian defense minister vowed to continue activities related to the country’s defense industry “with utmost power” and emphasized that the Islamic Republic “will not allow any suspension in the work of the Defense Ministry even for one day.”
